Governor’s Bridge

The Neighbourhood

A sought-after, quiet enclave within the buzz of midtown Toronto yet just 5 minutes from downtown, the Governor's Bridge neighbourhood boasts a distinctive selection of houses found in all shapes, sizes, and architectural styles.

The older homes were constructed in the 1920's, 1930's, and 1940's. Many of the bungalows from decades past have been demolished and replaced by new custom-built houses that fit comfortably onto the expansive lots that are typical for this neighbourhood.


For those seeking unrivaled privacy, the houses on Douglas Crescent sit out of the way and on top of the wooded hills of the Moore Park Ravine. Wildlife can be seen regularly from the backyards of these homes. The historic Governor's Manor, located on Douglas Crescent, has in recent years been transformed into upscale condominium townhomes.

Once you experience the peacefulness and quiet life that the idyllic setting of Governor's Bridge offers to its residents, you will see why people love the area the way they do! Let Liisa help you find your new home.
